    Here at R29, we're suckers when it comes to dogs, cats, or anything on four legs, really. So, Bethany Obrecht, the former artist and brains behind Found My Animal, a company who's mission is to raise awareness for rescue animals, is basically our soul sister. She's dedicated her time to raising awareness (and $$!) for needy animals, and uses her creative skills to create leashes and other accessories for adopted dogs.
